... :wave: What a great wonderment!! In my case, it's the other way around. We already know I have Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD), which can cause anemia (among other things).

I have renal (kidney) labs done every six... (2 replies)

... Eating ice was the first sign of my anemia, my Ferritin was 2 at the time. When you have G/B you usually need to get IV iron therapy from a Hematologist due to malabsorption resulting from your surgery. How is your B-12? I was told that eating ice is just a symptom and does not cause the actual anemia. You should contact your Bariatric specialist or a Hematologist for... (5 replies)
... Well I just got back from the Gastroentorologist and he definately wants to do the Colonoscopy and Endoscopy as well, but I will be put under so he will do them both at the same time.

... Brandy, Pernicious anemia can feel very, very scary, especially before you have a diagnosis. I have a B12 deficiency; my doctor doesn’t think it’s necessary to find out whether or not I have PA because she’s treating me as if I do anyway. (I’m a vegan and think that’s how I depleted my B12.) I’m more than twice your age (48), and I too absolutely felt like I was dying. Most... (5 replies)

... Thanks FLWRGIRL, I'm just being hard headed. My hemoglobin and hematocrit have steadily (but slowly) dropped since my early 30s. It used to be a healthy 41 and each year went down until I finally hit 34. I am back up to 37 and ferritin is rising.
